The distance between the two sites is not that large to preclude walking. Only a few minutes.
People not wishing to walk can use either Chicago Transit, or share cabs.
Regarding transit both hotel and museum have nearby stops for Brown and Purple lines. Which of the lines is better depends on the direction to go:
|Hotel||Merchandise Mart||Brown Line To Museum|
|Museum||Washington/Wells||Purple Line To Hotel|
The map makes also clear that it is easy to get to and from Chicago O'Hare Airport.
|Airport||Blue Line||Clark/Lake||Brown Line||Merchandise Mart @ Hotel|
|Merchandise Mart @ Hotel||Purple Line||Clark/Lake||Blue Line||Airport|
both show the relevant transit stops also, although not marked. They are the nearest stops to each location.
